JACKSON WILD SUMMIT
2022 Theme: Regeneration
Regeneration celebrates innovative approaches to climate action and recognizes the power of the next generation's courageous and authentic perspectives. At the 2022 Summit, we will explore the profound transformation occurring within the media and conservation sectors, highlighting bold approaches to confronting the climate crisis and impending widespread biodiversity collapse we face as a planet, through science and storytelling.
This year’s Summit will take place in-person, with a selection of sessions live-streamed to our virtual audience.
Jackson Wild Summit programming will take place at the Vila Vita Pannonia, with the exception of the networking event on Wednesday evening and Excursions into the National Park on Friday. Vila Vita is situated in the heart of Neusiedler See - Seewinkel National park in Burgenland, Austria, just one hour south of Vienna.
